Re: No Sound - Puzzle
I would like to try this but there is no pamixer. apropos pulseaudio
shows many pa... commands but no pamixer. apt-cache search pamixer
returns a blank line.

please try all of this using pamixer, pulseaudio is controled by its
own mixer software not by alsamixer. Remember pulseaudio when
installed manages alsa and not the other way around.

From a terminal run alsamixer, f6, select Xonar DSX
On another terminal cd to a directory of ogg files, start a playback
of a file.
Oh the desktop start pulse audio volume control. Monitor shows strong
active playback levels
Switch to terminal running alsamixer, mute master front which mutes
all output channels.
Return to desktop pulse audio volume control, monitor continues to
show strong active playback levels even though alsamixer thinks all
output channels muted!
The music goes down and around and comes out nowhere!

I just installed an Asus Xonar DSX pcie card. Alsamixer recognizes
PulseAudio Volume Control show a strong signal level during

sound, no problems.
I assume the problem is a missing linux driver for the Xonar but I
seen claims that Xonar works out of the box on linux systems.
Does anyone have this working?
I am using Debian Stretch.
